St. Pete Times Forum (101-2396)


Product Description



Tampa Bay Lightning (NHL) (1996-present) Tampa Bay Storm (AFL) (1997-2008) Tampa Breeze (LFL) (2009-present)

St. Pete Times Forum, located in Downtown Tampa's Channelside District was a secondary location chosen after the failure of Tampa Coliseum Inc. to secure funding to construct an arena on Tampa Sports Authority land near Tampa Stadium. It opened in 1996 as the Ice Palace. Its first event was the Lightning hosting the New York Rangers. The Lightning won by a score of 5–2.

The arena was built as a new home for the Lightning after it outgrew the older, smaller Expo Hall at the Florida State Fairgrounds. Prior to the opening of the Ice Palace, the Lightning moved to the Florida Suncoast Dome, which was renamed the "Thunderdome", in St. Petersburg, Florida, joining the Tampa Bay Storm, in 1994. Upon the completion of the Ice Palace, both the Lightning and the Tampa Bay Storm, also a tenant of the Thunderdome, moved in and have made it their home since then. The Thunderdome, now named Tropicana Field, is currently home to Major League Baseball's Tampa Bay Rays.
